INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Payment of Fees for Licensure

 
  A new fee structure for teacher licensure was approved by
  the Board of Education and implemented statewide on
  September 1, 1996.  The new fee schedule was announced in
  Superintendent's Memorandum Number 137.

  The Superintendent's Memorandum stated that the payment of
  will be flagged, noting that no additional actions will be
  made on the license until payment is received.  The original
  fee and the $25 charge for the returned check will need to
  be submitted in the form of a money order, cashier's check,
  or certified check.

  I hope this policy revision will assist educators in
  submitting payment for action on their licenses.  Please do
  not hesitate to contact Dr. Thomas A. Elliott, Assistant
  Superintendent for Compliance, at (804) 371-2522 if you have
  any questions.
